Oracle Database 11g R2 released

Oracle has released the latest version of the worlds largest used database!

Key new features are:
"Shared Grid" with server pools for consolidating multiple applications into a single RAC cluster
"RAC One Node" for consolidating less critical application systems transparently get the benefits of easy movement etc.,
"ASM Cluster File System (ACFS)" in the storage management
"Instance Caging" for confining the database to specific cores in a SMP environments
"In-Memory Database Cache (IMDB Cache)" for moving the OLTP processing to the middle tier
capabilities to use the Disaster Recovery (Idle) infrastructure for Reposting and Backup operations.

It has several security enhancements as well.
This Oracle White paper has more details.

It is nice to hear about the new features from Tom Kyte. Being with oracle I had the opportunity to hear about the features directly from the "Architect" of those features!
